Chelsea rejected permanent option in Borussia Dortmund's Michy Batshuayi loan deal

Dortmund CEO Hans Joachim Watzke says Peter Stoeger could stay on as manager

Dortmund CEO Hans Joachim Watzke says Peter Stoeger could stay on as manager

Batshuayi, 24, was involved in a three-man transfer on deadline day on 31 January, joining Dortmund on loan until the end of the season to fill the void left by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who joined Arsenal in a club record deal [The Daily Telegraph].

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has suggested the club may keep Peter Stoger as coach beyond the end of the season.

He said: "He hasn't lost a game yet".

And Watzke admits that Dortmund got lucky that the Belgian made a decision to join the club as they have been trying to convince him to move to Germany for years.

The Belgian has wasted no time making an impression in Germany, scoring on his Dortmund debut against FC Koln away from home.

Chelsea have been spurned in the past for their decisions to sell on younger players only to see them develop into stars with rival clubs.

Borussia Dortmund are considering a bid to sign Michy Batshuayi on a permanent basis this summer.

Watzke has suggested the club will try to do exactly that, but admits a deal could be hard.

"There is always a chance, although if he scores in every game, it will be hard".

Batshuayi has hit the ground running at Dortmund with three goals in two games.
